I don't know why I get so over excited about selling my knitting, I just do and now I'm home from the craft fair I am tired and emotional, well maybe not too much of the latter but still a bit wound up. The craft fair was open from 11 am till 4 pm, the longest event I've ever done and gosh it really did feel long though I managed quite a bit of knitting whilst sitting behind my stall. Nothing really happened until around 1, I sold about £60 worth of work in total which was fine and bought some delicious home made soaps from another stallholder and a necklace from Lesley, who had the table next to me and was great company.
As I mentioned the craft fair was part of a weekend music festival, quite a few of the stalls were music related and the front of the large function room was used for an open mic event where anyone could get up to sing and play. I wasn't looking forward to this but it was surprisingly good in parts, helped to pass the time and probably brought more people in. Then there was a song writing competition where musicians were able to perform their own pieces. This absolutely blew me away, such beautiful moving songs, it was a privilege to be in the midst of such creative people. I already have great admiration for makers but this was a timely reminder that writers are wonderful crafters too. I'm quite pleased I don't have any more sales planned though I am running a Sit and Knit event at our village market in a couple of weeks where I hope beginners and experienced knitters will help to produce squares for a charity blanket. Tonight I plan to chill out with a ready meal, a glass of wine and maybe some knitting that isn't destined to be sold.
